The Ultimate Liberator!

For the seekers of knowledge
Can there be a knowledge?
better than
The Knowledge of The Divine, Shri Rama!

The one who liberated
Even the blades of grasses
And all the swarms of ants

Leaving none behind
That ever existed
In the Good City of Ayodhya

And placed them in
An exotic heaven
Created exclusively for them
By the Great Grandshire Brahma!


Ramayanam is Agriculture
Bhagavatham is Harvest

The twin-syllable, Rama
When a devotee exalts!
The Birth-Death cycle
It permanently halts

Goodness and Wealth
It everyday brings
Sin and poverty
It cleanses and shrinks


Goodness Honesty Sweetness Simplicity
Gentleness Strength Humility Bravery
Valour Talent Prowess Success
Memory Trustworthiness Heroism Genuinity
Such adorable qualities and so much more
By chanting Rama's name you will score!


My Lord's Story: Goodness Incarnate

Ramayanam in English poetry.

The Supreme Lord of the Universe was once born on this earth as a Human Being, faced challenges and had His share of pain and pleasure going through both good and bad times like any of us. Like any of us He too, took His turn in laughter and cry.

This humility of The Lord, that makes Him come down to earth and share with us our difficulties to show us a way to handle them is what I admire in Him. This quality of Him, makes me surrender to Him unconditionally and makes me want to sing His Glory on and on and on.

My Lord's Story is an out pour of my devotion that seeps out in gratitude for the pains He took to be a lighthouse for us, to cross the ocean of Samsara.

Squirrel's Song

Dear Lord Ram! Dear Lord Ram!

I cherish in my heart, the blessed day
On which thy Highness came my way
Bent down to me and showed thy palm
And made me climb thy macho arm

On thy masculine shoulders, thou made me play
That moment alone my mind does replay
A zillion times, over and over
The abundance of love, thou did shower

The moment I set my eyes on you
Thy true identity, my heart did knew!
As I jump on trees from branch to branch
My heart did shout with a faith so staunch

That you are the one who resides in my heart
The source of my life and the inseparable part
That you are the one, my very core
And the source of energy in my every pore

To play on thy shoulder, like on a terrace
To relish from thy palm, a soothing caress
To serve in thy mission, a negligible part
But a name in thy story, like a counterpart

A privilege, even Great Devotees didn't get
Not even Hanuman, my Bro, I can bet
What have I done to deserve this grace?
The gratitude I feel is difficult to phrase

Living on nuts and fruits is no restraint
Never did I meditate like a Holy Saint
To chant thy name, never did I squeak
My search for food is no selfless work

Men can learn a lesson from me
To get thy grace, ever to be
All they need is a child-like heart
Not of cunningness, the tiniest part

Accept the life that is given to them
And cut out greed, at the very stem
To shed of burdens, living moment by moment
And let go of grudges that makes them repent

Eat as much as their stomach can take
And share with others the rest of their make
Roam about the world with a mindset, free
As I leap with joy from tree to tree!

I am sure Dear Ram, on a blessed day
Your Highness, for sure, will walk their way
Will bend down to them and show thy palm
And make them climb, thy macho arm!
